Barton Gellman on Dick Cheney, Part I listen10/09/08 Mitch E. Perry
WMNF Drive-Time News Thursday | Listen to this entire show:
Earlier this year, Washington Post reporter Barton Gellman shared the Pulitzer Prize for his reporting on Vice President Dick Cheneyâ€™s domestic agenda.
Heâ€™s now expanded on that in his new biography, called Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency.
In the first of a two-part interview conducted earlier this month, WMNF asked Barton Gellman about the beginning of his book â€“ which looks at Cheneyâ€™s first job for George W. Bush â€“ vetting the vice presidential candidates. We asked Gellman about what happened in the process with former Oklahoma Republican Gov. Frank Keating.
Weâ€™ll hear the second part of this interview tomorrow night on the Evening News.
